My son is now almost 23 years old.
We have been through a lot with him over the years but I still remember when he was born.
Day 1 My son (who has multiple disabilities) was born 2 weeks late and due to fetal distress, he was taken emergency c-section. Initially, we didn’t know why he was in fetal distress but we would know soon. His apgar scores were 8 and 9. Since he was a c-section, I was in the hospital for a few days. Rooming in was quite popular. Even though this was my first baby, things just didn’t seem right. He wasn’t catching on to nursing and would sleep a lot. He would act like he was starving, I would try to nurse him and then he would be so exhausted that he would fall asleep and not eat. I was a bit worried but I was assured it was all normal. I persisted with my concerns and Day 2 they took him away to check him out. Doctors would periodically come by and give me updates but the tests were inconclusive. Day 3 I was told that there seemed to be an issue with his heart and he would be transferred to another hospital to have some further testing. I was still stuck in the hospital recovering and my baby was now taken away by ambulance. Scary times…(to be continued)
